    The chairman of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) disclosed he tested positive for COVID-19. 

“Ako’y naka-quarantine sa bahay. Ang aking buong pamilya ay infected,” said CHED Chairperson Prospero de Vera. 
 
“Pero dahil sa mga tumutulong sa aking doktor, kasama ang pag-telemed, ako’y unti-unting gumagaling,” he said in a televised public briefing. 

(I am quarantined at home. My whole family is infected. But because of the doctors helping me, with telemedicine, I am slowly recovering.)
